If I were in your shoes I would bring it to a shop and admit defeat. It's unfortunate that what seemed like a simply task turned out to be the opposite but the last thing you want to do is make it worse.

If you really can't tow it to a shop and you want to do it yourself, there are plenty of videos on YouTube that feature people in the same situation as you. Do a little research and maybe one will work.

Good luck !
They're NGK Laser Iridiums (~$14/plug) so they are some of the nicest consumer plugs available. They were almost definitely over-torqued.

OP, it's possible the head can be saved, but unless you're very confident in broken stud removal, then I would suggest taking it to a shop as well.

Good luck!
